    Again. I actually feel a little dumb. I always thought that I had to play the whole scale and switch to different modes and use arpeggios. The countless hours I spent playing scales and arpeggios, trying to memorize them. Now I am improvizing using only 4 notes. And it actually sounds pretty good. That never happened before. Thank you so very much.

    You’re welcome.
    And you shouldn’t feel “a little dumb.” There are as many ways to learn how to solo as there are to play a solo. But the coolest thing is that as you grow and evolve as a guitar player, your soloing will grow and evolve, too. Find and develop your own voice. And above all, have fun and enjoy yourself.
    Looking forward to hearing how things are progressing with you.

    David, I am truly in amour by your teaching style, the content and presentation of your knowledge. I am 63 and just returned to music after a far too long hiatus. I have kept his article series as a book mark for quick reference when I need inspiration. This opens a who;e new level and knowledge in an more fun approach to scales chords styles and tool box skills that is invaluable in the pursuit of one own creativity. I thank you so very much. I am using this as a basis for practice and skill development that has helped tremendously. I too have followed the other viewer, the same track of learning and have been bogged down with information overflow and practice stagnation. This has help break us free.
    Looking forward to all you can conger up and give with much anticipation.
    Respectfully, Keltie
